New Dash Paint:
Another day, another Jeep project underway. One of the many projects I worked on this weekend was to paint the dash a nice clean satin black.
Unfortunately, it went horribly wrong!
You see, I purchased the paint at the local auto store. Typically, I order my Jeep stuff from Amazon where I can study all of the reviews before making a purchase… bnot this time <sigh>.
If I had read the reviews on Amazon first (read them here), I would have known NOT to use this paint.
For your information, here is a photo of the paint NOT to use:
The reason you should not use it, is it dries with a greenish tint. When it first goes on it looks great, but once it dries, it has this strange tint that gives the impression of green undertones… Just don’t use it.
I used the Krylon Satin Black, and I think it turned out great (so far).
As I sit here writing this, the dash is sitting in the garage curing. I guess one good thing about the 90+ degree weather is paint dries fast. From reading the instructions is said to let the paint cure for a while so I decided to leave it for a few days before re-installing the dash trim. Plus, I had several other dash projects to work on.
Take a look at how crisp the dash panel looks…
